The "E" section is the first of the smaller ones. Under 250 artists, so I'll have them all posted by next week.

A reminder of the notes and conventions used in creating the data:

1. The first rule is that all rules have exceptions, common sense (and my own inconsistencies) may sometimes take precedence

2. Act names - I've tried to reflect the act names as given on the charts, occasionally this is different from that shown on the label or sleeve/cover. If the chart credit is undeniably wrong (e.g. "Elizabethan Reggae") then common sense has been used. An initial "The" from artists names has almost always been dropped, a separator of "And" is usually replaced with an ampersand.

3. Personal names - I have tried to show "real" names of performers where possible, middle names are not shown unless they have some relevance to the stage name (e.g. it would not make sense to show Rihanna's real name as just Robyn Fenty). Where the name an individual goes by is a standard short form of his/her given name (e.g. if someone known as Andy is really an Andrew), I normally haven't bothered showing this. Diactritics are shown where possible, but the software used in compiling the data has difficult with some non-ASCII characters, and the ý in Mýa. I have not shown aritst names in anything other than the Latin script, so for artists whose "real" names are written in Cyrillic, Burmese or Korean for instance, I have used the transliteration as normally shown on the charts. Artists from Northern Ireland are shown thus, rather than being from either the UK or Ireland which hopefully will reduce arguments!

4. Dates of birth/death - Shown where I have found these while checking out other details. Any additional information gladly received

5. Band membership - Normally relates to their hitmaking period only. Changes in personnel before or after this are very rarely shown. Members are normally shown in alphabetical order (but with some exceptions - e.g. Crosby, Stills & Nash are treated in that order) for either the debut hit or the main part of the groups career, with changes usually noted in chronological order

6. Featured artists - This got complex! Where a combination of lead/featured artist ONLY had hit(s) together (e.g. Gotye featuring Kimbra) they are only shown as effectively one act. Where the lead artist has had other hits but the featured one isn't, the lead artist only has a separate full entry. Where either the featured artist has other credits, or both do, both have individual entries. The same (more or less) works with normal duos - for instance Simon & Garfunkel's hits are listed under both Art Garfunkel's and Paul Simon's solo careers.
6a The OCC has sometimes changed the credit shown on the chart during a chart run. In such cases I have tried to use the most inclusive credit.

7. Where a record has been in the charts as both a "normal" A-side and a Double A-Side (whether in combination with a track by the same artist or a different artist), it is shown with separate lines (e.g. "Last Christmas" by Wham!)

8. When a record has re-entered the chart with a different artist credit, I have normally amassed the two together (e.g. "Woman In Chains"). Which artist credit I have used depends on the song itself, and a note is attached showing that an alternate credit exists.

9. Remixes/Re-Recordings/Live Versions used to be charted separately and are shown as different hits, but current practice is for all versions to be collected and charted together, so for any chart runs of such tracks since the advent of the download era are normally added to the original hit version

10. Labels and catalogue numbers are completely omitted

11. EP/LP tracks are shown where known when the chart entry was credited to an EP/LP. If an EP was released on two different CD singles, it is usually the tracks of CD1 that are listed

12. Most of the "bio" information comes straight from Wikipedia (to save time), so there is the likelihood that a number of the entries contain mistakes. Please let me know of any of these, or if there's anything that you think is significant enough to be mentioned. I have tried to keep opinions out of them, and kept references to genres to a minimum as those tend to cause more disagreements than almost anything else. Honours such as knighthoods, OBE's etc. are shown. Oscars, Grammys & Brits are a work in progress and will eventually all be shown, less high profile awards (e.g. MOBOs, Mercury Prize, etc.) are unlikely to be listed unless a particular artist has achieved something extraordinary.
12a Close family relationships between hitmakers are shown where possible, and also in some cases to other famous people (e.g. it made no sense to write even a sketchy bio for Jane Wyman and not mention she was married to Ronald Reagan)

13. Cross-references ("See also....") are a work in progress, as are the marking of US number ones. Expect these to get more comprehensive as the series goes on

14. Alphabetisation - aritsts whose name is an acronym (and is pronounced as such), e.g. ABC are sorted as if the name is a series of spaced letters (i.e. A B C). All such acts are listed at the start of those with that initial. Where an acronymic (?) name is usually voiced as a word (e.g. ABBA) then it is indexed under that word. Numbers are treated as if they are spelled out, punctuation is ignored. Individuals are indexed firstly under their surname then their given name(s). For some artists, it can be difficult to determine whether a name is a given name followed by a surname, or whether the whole thing is to be treated as one name. In these cases (most of which involve seem to involve rappers), I have tried to use the sorting sequence used for that artist within Wikipedia categories.

15. Where an artist has had hits under two (or more) different names, they are merged (e.g. Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus). With some combinations (usually European production outfits), it can sometimes be difficult to identity which pairings work under which names!

16. Nationalities - I've tried to use the nationalities where people grew up rather than the place they happened to be born. Where there is some difference of opinion I have usually come down on one side of the coin or the other. Large groups are given under the likely most-common nationality (e.g. the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is shown as Austrian, even if a number of them may not have been). Club football teams of the modern era are usually shown as "Mostly British". Anonymous cover version acts may be shown without nationality. Where a country has changed name since the person was born, I have no hard and fast rule about which name to use but hopefully this should be clear either way. Where I know a person has changed or taken on a second citizenship I have mentioned it

Index
A was split between two threads - A-Akon and Alabama 3-Azzido Da Bass
B - BB&Q-Bystanders
C - C & C Music Factory-Miley Cyrus
D - DB Boulevard-Dyverse

A few corrections / pieces of additional info.

Ange Dolittle (one O) of Eat is male so they should be shown as an entirely male band.

Not all of Duane Eddy’s hits were instrumentals. Play Me Like You Play Your Guitar had vocals (and there may have been others).

The tracks on Eddie and the Hotrods’ Marquee EP were 96 Tears, Get Out Of Heaven and a Gloria (the Van Morrison song) / Satisfaction medley.

Keep these updates coming!

Duane Eddy himself doesn't sing, though, so I'd still count him as an instrumentalist.

Andre Williams (Ebony Dubsters) = Shy FX.

Dave Edmunds was a member of Love Sculpture who had 1 hit.

Should be 'Rise Of The Eagles', not 'Off'.

Ludovico Einaudi's hit was I Giorni.

Should be Panamanian, not Panamaian.

Great stuff as usual, though!

Second half of the E's now posted. Hopefully I've taken on board all the corrections above, but I've left Duane Eddy as he is for now.

Eminem headlines the latest batch, alongside the Everly Brothers, Erasure, Eurythmics, David Essex & Gloria Estefan.

Strangely the only two E's in this weeks Top 75 are the last two alphabetically, Ella Eyre & George Ezra.

I would list Emerson, Lake & Palmer separately from Keith Emerson. ELP were a band, not Emerson plus two named backing musicians.

It might be worth noting that Love The Way You Lie (Eminem) was the best-selling single of 2010 despite not getting to number one.

Vince Clarke (Erasure) was also a member of The Assembly as well as Depeche Mode and Yazoo.

Tracey Thorne and Ben Watt didn’t get married until 2009, long after Everything But The Girl’s final hit although they were a couple throughout EBTG's time in the charts.

Should be 'Prince Elwood Strickland III', and he is a singer/songwriter (not 'songewriter').

Guilty Conscience was Eminem ft Dr Dre.

Emmie was a member of Indien (who charted in 2003).

Enemy's first hit was Away From Here.

Harry Enfield was Kevin of Kevin & Perry (who featured on the Precocious Brats' hit from 2000).

Enya was credited on Mario Winans' hit I Don't Wanna Know (she is sampled on both that and You Should Really Know). You Should Really Know also credited Naila Boss.

Eye To Eye also charted as part of Narcotic Thrust.

Eyeopener's members also charted as members of other acts (LMC, Flip & Fill, Bus Stop).

Great stuff as usual, though!

Eminem's "Not Afraid" should have a $ as it was a US number-one.

My Edition of the 7th Edition Guinness book, lists the only hit they had as an "early recording by the Sex Pistols". However later editions remove any reference or link with the Sex Pistols.

I have to agree with the EMERSON LAKE & PALMER being listed separate. Adding references to Greg Lake and Robert Palmer.

Enigma's Ain't No Stopping... Is listed sometimes as "Disco Mix 81".

Exploited's third hit credits as Exploited and Anti-Pasti.

E's updated with all the above corrections/amendments, plus brought up to date with George Ezra's 2nd hit being added.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer brought in as per "public demand", as they were a group at the time of "Fanfare For The Common Man" (they were quite often more a collection of individuals who produced solo work collected together under the ELP name without working on each other's material).
